Draft Scout Player News
08/12/12 - WR Stephen Williams (hamstring) has missed both preseason games. He faces a stiff competition to make the 53-man roster.
06/07/12 - WR Stephen Williams wants to make a big impression in the preseason, but he realizes he's done that before only to ride the bench in the regular season. Williams led the team in receiving during the preseason last year and was a phenom in 2010. But he hasn't been able to get on the field because he plays behind Larry Fitzgerald. And Williams has not proven to be a good special teams player.
"It's hard to put a 6-5 dude somewhere on special teams," Williams said. "But I need to find some type of role there."
03/11/12 - WR Stephen Williams, scheduled to be an exclusive rights free agent March 13, signed what is believed to be a one-year contract with the Cardinals.
